Petition against new Clarendon Parking changes

I found out about the proposed changes to local street parking in Clarendon. Apparently Arlington Country wants to extend the parking meter times from 6pm until 10pm. Also rates would go up in another garage, not sure which.

There is a paper version of the petition against the changes floating around Whitlows, but would like it if anyone could point me in the direction of an online version.

Wait, you're complaining about paying for parking in Clarendon? You serious? You don't expect to park for free at a Nationals game, do you? Parking is not a public good--if you want it, you should have to pay for it. If you don't want to pay for it, Metro, or find the free parking spot 6 blocks away and walk.

PBJ - no I'm not complaining about paying for parking at all. I just want to keep the current parking regulations the same. Sorry if I was not clear.

The proposed changes will turn those spaces 6 blocks away that are free after 6pm now into paid spaces until 10pm.
